opinion from Brian Crowell:

How Badass Teachers (BATS) Lost Their Soul; A Critique By Brian Crowell       My name is Brian Crowell. I am former member of The Research Team of The National Badass Teachers Organization. I am one of the organizing members of the new Badass Teachers of Color Organization. This new organization was founded by 14 members including co founder of BATS, Professor Mark Naison of Fordham University. This critique will be a technical critique of how the policies of BATS is inconsistent with its creation and how its response to the dismal election results forced a split within the organization of BATS. This analysis is not meant for any personal attacks but rather to show a direct conflict in policy prescriptions for current problems facing labor. I will not discuss non progressive views of certain members of BATS, as I think that will dissuade from the current crisis facing American Labor.   Critique 1. The National BATS Organization has no interest in restoring the true left and progressive roots of Labor. When presented with a resolution to restore FDR’s Second Bill of Rights as a primary platform of policy, the resolution was killed in the National BATS Leadership. Even though the resolution was very popular, and had much input from members of BAT leadership, the Leadership of BATS didn’t “want to offend NEA or AFT” by presenting them with the resolution. Given the election results and the difficult terrain for labor going forward I … [Read more...]

Roseanne Barr’s ‘Momsters: When Moms Go Bad’ – November 28th

“These ‘momsters’ find themselves knee-deep in schemes so sordid and unexpected that the only way out is to keep going – you will laugh at the inherent humor of these situations just as often as you gasp at the shock of their crimes,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination American, American Heroes Channel, Discovery Family Channel and Discovery Fit & Health. “Roseanne acts as the mother of all meltdowns in her uniquely sarcastic tone while telling the stories of the many women who give Mommie Dearest a run for her money.” Read more at MonstersAndCritics.com... … [Read more...]

The Waiaka Bridge and the Kamuela Museum:

The Waiaka Bridge and the Kamulea Museum Again, government encroachment is threatening to destroy two important Waimea landmarks and further dilute and desecrate the rich history of the Hawaiian Peoples. At the intersection of Highways 250 and 19 stands the Historic Waiaka Bridge, currently scheduled for demolition in 2015 by the State of Hawaii. Built by Charles H. Will in 1932, it was the first bridge ever funded by federal money on Hawai’i Island. Coming at the cusp of the Great Depression and WWII, the bridge would serve as a vital link for both native and American military interests in the years to come, and it continues to this day. Directly alongside the bridge stands the Kamuela Museum, a labor of love and respect for the Hawaiian heritage and built by native locals Albert and Harriet Solomon in 1968. Albert’s part-Hawaiian mother was a descendant of King Kamehameha I, and his father was Arabic, Turkish and Jewish. Harriet Meyers Solomon was the great-great granddaughter of John Parker, of the world-famous Parker Ranch. The Kahunas had predicted to a young Albert that he would one day settle on land that had three mountains in sight, and he and Harriet felt the purchase of their land parcel in 1954 was “meant to be.” Until Albert’s death at age 95 in 2002, the museum served as an amazing repository of native lore and history, and was instrumental in educating generations of the local people in their rich heritage. Historically, at least three Heiau are … [Read more...]
